Mark Valencia—Adjunct Senior Scholar, National Institute for #SouthChinaSea Studies, Haikou, China—uses Xinhua-like language to accuse @GregPoling @CSIS @AsiaMTI of "Beating the drum for the narrative of the Chinese '#MaritimeMilitia' threat" in #IPPReview
ippreview.com/index.php/Blog…
Valencia cited my piece with @KennedyMaritime in @ForeignAffairs, but that's a 2016 publication.

The latest is here: andrewerickson.com/2019/01/the-ch… & apdf-magazine.com/maritime-numbe….

Instead of piling on @GregPoling, let's "Seek Truth from (Many) Facts" regarding #China's #MaritimeMilitia.
And while we're at it, can those in the know give us the full scoop on #IPPReview?

"operated by International Public Policy Pte. Ltd., a Singapore-registered company which is independent of any organization"

Wording sounds rather abstract & mysterious..

#Singapore Moves Closer To Joining What #China Calls The #US F-35 Friends Circle' - The short and vertical takeoff and landing F-35B could be especially valuable for the tiny Southeast Asian country during a crisis. thedrive.com/the-war-zone/2…
The vertical takeoff & landing-capable F-35B, in particular, could be especially valuable for the Singapore given its ability to operate independently of runways or potentially from the flight deck of larger amphibious ships the country also plans to acquire in the future.
It's hard not to see the South China Sea & China more broadly, behind Singapore’s interest in the F-35. Singapore is heavily reliant on the maritime trade that crisscrosses through that body of water. Other areas, such as the Malacca Strait, could become choke points in a crisis.

1/ Ong Ye Kung: "The fact is they (the LGBTQ community) live in Singapore peacefully, no discrimination at work, housing (and) education."

This is worrying 'cos either the education minister doesn't know what "discrimination" means, or he doesn't know what facts are.
2/ @TODAYonline reported on his comments, reiterating the government stance that they'll "leave it to society to decide over time" when it comes to the issue of repealing 377A. todayonline.com/singapore/no-d…
3/ The most charitable interpretation is that the minister is unfortunately out of touch with the ground reality. There is constant discrimination against the #LGBT community in #Singapore.

The first trip abroad that I paid for, was to #Malaysia and #Singapore. I've never understood the average Nigerian's obsession with "Jand" and "Yankee". So, as soon as I could afford to travel abroad, I chose somewhere exotic. #Travel #TravelBae
When I was growing up, I had a strong image of who I wanted to be in life. I wanted to be exposed and have distinct encounters. I wanted to explore unusual things and meet unusual people. #TravelBae
#Singapore & #Malaysia did that for me. I met people I wouldn't ordinarily connect with and listened to them talk about their society and daily lives. I returned from the trip knowing there was a world bigger than #Nigeria. There were people with national problems too. #TravelBae
